Has the farmer got a machine with a trenching bucket(or similar?) ...Take off six inches or so at a time, search the spoil & the new level, rinse & repeat. ::g

The valuers got back to us on this they have offered me 2,830 pound for it which is ain’t bad on the valuers document they said they grouped them together to sell in an auction is that common practice cheers

What you have received is the provisional valuation.
The coins will then go to the Treasure Valuation Committee (TVC) who can increase the provisional, especially if you can provide written evidence about the rare Eddy. (Your choice...if you are happy leave it be)
If you & the landowner both agree its fair then the museum then needs to raise the money.
Grouping the coins is normal practice & you are very lucky they didn`t "cherry pick" the rare Eddy. ::g
Happy days. ::g
